About

Organic, Non GMO Vegetable & Herb Seeds and Garlic! Fortified with Mycorrhizae, Beneficial Bacteria and Trichoderma for Healthy & Nutritious Plants!

When Kristen was a kid, she’d pull the carrots from the ground before they were ripe, wash them in the baby wading pool and munch away. It was the beginning of her love for gardening.

Fast forward and she found herself at the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington with its organic farm on campus, and Ecological Agriculture program. It was there where she realized that her passion for growing things would also become her career. With the abundance of herbs and fungi in the Pacific North West, her learning grew beyond the scope of just how to plant (and eat from) a garden.

When deciding on her master’s thesis, she collected all of her information and designed a project to test the difference in growth rates between corn which had been fortified with Mycorrhizal fungi and corn which had not. Right off the bat, the root structure of the inoculated corn was much better developed. A frost hit and wiped out the non-fortified corn. Amazingly, the corn that had been fortified with Mycorrhizae was still standing! She knew she was on to something important.

After graduating from the University of Nebraska in the Summer of 2012 with an MS in Sustainable Agriculture and moving back to her home state of New Jersey, Kristen knew she had to share this amazing fungus with the world!

All Organic, NON GMOs seeds, including lots of heirlooms, All fortified with this amazing fungus! In addition, she discovered how Beneficial Bacteria and another fungi: Trichoderma, improve plant growth and here began Dirt Goddess Super Seeds!

Her operations have been expanding and recently she has started up Dirt Goddess Garlic Farm in Port Jervis, NY.

About Dirt Goddess Super Seeds:

Super Seeds have been fortified with Mycorrhizae and Beneficial Bacteria and can be planted directly into your garden, pots or seeding tray from the package. These microbes will improve the ability of plant roots to utilize the soil resources by 1000's of times, create stronger, healthier plants, more nutritious vegetables, and reduce or eliminate the need for fertilizers and pesticides.

About our Seeds:

Seeds are sourced from several regional, organic certified growers. I strive to incorporate heirloom seeds, and will expand my seed offerings as the company grows. No GMOs ever.

About our packaging:

Packaging is made from recycled paper and printed with water based ink. All of the packaging and displays will be recyclable, compostable or plantable. All made in the USA. I'm still looking for affordable seed envelopes from non-tree sources.

About Mycorrhizae:

Mycorrhizae forms a symbiotic relationship with the roots of 95% of the worlds plants and it’s believed that plants were able to evolve onto land due to this symbiosis. Colonization by mycorrhizae can provide multiple functions: increased nutrient uptake, drought tolerance, resistance to pathogens, increased vigor and yield. It has been shown that the presence of Mycorrhizae can increase a plant’s absorption of certain nutrients which it cannot uptake on its own, including phosphorus, nitrogen, sulfur, zinc, potassium and micronutrients needed for plant use.

Unfortunately in most gardens and agricultural settings the mycorrhizae is destroyed by tilling, the overuse of chemical fertilizers, and fungicides. The mycorrhizae must be re-added to the soil in order to benefit the plant.

Mycorrhizae is naturally 100% organic.

About Beneficial Bacteria:

Your plants greatly benefit from the action of certain Bacterias and Trichoderma in the soil.

Beneficial Aerobic Bacteria enhance plant growth & root formation, decompose organic material in the soil into plant nutrients and build soil structure and humus levels.

Bacteria fix nitrogen by converting nitrogen from the air into plant available form. It increases nutrient levels in the soil by converting insoluble nutrients (including phosphorus) for plant use and improves nutrient absorption by increasing cell membrane permeability of root hairs.

They stimulate the production of plant enzymes which enhances metabolic functions, naturally accelerate cell division to promote healthy controlled growth, produce natural plant growth hormones, enhance seed germination and viability of emerging seedlings, suppress pathogenic fungi and reduce planting and transplant shock.

These actions can reduce the fertilizers needed, lead to higher yields, improve soil conditions, provide plants with increased resistance to environmental extremes (drought, heat, cold), increase plant vigor, color and density, and increase plant resilience to pests and diseases.

The bacteria will need to be introduced into a fallow field and re-introduced every 2-3 years.

About Trichoderma:

Trichoderma produce natural plant hormones which promote plant and root growth. Inoculated seeds resist pre-germination rot and improve the germination rate and period of seeds. You’ll see improved disease resistance and a suppression of pathogenic fungi that cause seed rot, root rot, stem rot and fruit rot.

Trichoderma colonizes with the plants root system and develops a symbiotic relationship with the plant. The Trichoderma feed from the starches and sugars produced by the plant; while exuding beneficial enzymes and proteins for the host plants use. As a result, the plant produces a larger root system, improves resistance to stresses such as diseases, and improves its nitrogen and water use efficiency, thus resulting in higher yields.
